Nonviolent communication (NVC)

Nonviolent Communication offers us a new way of seeing the world that helps us better understand ourselves and other people so we can create more real connection in our relationships.

NVC can guide us to find more clarity and compassion for what’s going on in ourselves and others, what motivates our behaviour, to find more choice and authenticity, and to find courage to name and ask for what would enrich us, without shame. It is a way to see our shared humanity and the universal human needs we all have, and to see beyond our different strategies.

We run events, workshops and practice groups based on nonviolent communication (NVC). Find out more below…

NVC workshops

We have an in person foundation training coming up in September, and are hoping to organise more weekend / multi day events in the hills near Hebden Bridge – an opportunity to spend time together in nature, make connections, learn and practice NVC, give and receive support, and have fun!

NVC practice groups

We run 2 Nonviolent Communication practice groups – one in person in Calderdale , and an online group. These are both currently on Wednesdays and open for new people to join. Contact Tom for more information at

Calderdale NVC Community

There is a growing warm and friendly NVC community in Calderdale. We meet to connect, support each other in integrating nvc and principles of nonviolence, build community and find mutual support. Find out more about Calderdale NVC Community here.

NVC book group

Viv hosts an occasional book group, working through Marshall’s classic text ‘NVC – a language for life’ – a great place to start if you are a beginner, or if you would value revisiting the basics. We meet online covering a chapter a week. If you are interested in doing this, please get in touch.


Please get in touch or sign up to our mailing list for more information.

Tom W & Viv are both NVC practitioners on the path towards NVC certification (an accreditation process that takes 3-5 years to complete).
